10/10 Exceptional

This Riad was lovely. Clean and quiet. The food at the on-site restaurant was very good. The room was comfortable and the pool was great to have after some long days out. The stand out was Marwan (manager/concierge ?). He was so helpful and fun to chat with. He made our experience a step above what we expected.

Very nice Riad experience in Marrakech!
I wanted to have the experience of staying in a Riad in the middle of Marrakech. This fit the bill! As with any old city, the taxi could not drop us off directly in front of the Riad so someone from the Riad picked us up from the closest parking lot. The hotel was well-kept, considering how old it was. It gives you an idea of how people lived in this The breakfasts and dinners they served were very tasty, freshly made too. The staff was super-super helpful, for which I was very thankful. One of my ID cards fell from my luggage, they found it and immediately sent it to the next hotel where we were staying. I would highly recommend.

I strongly reccommend Riad Rafaelle. The riad is beautiful, clean, and perfectly located within the old medina near the markets and a few restaurants. The small pool in the courtyard is a great way to cool off mid-day after exploring the city. The staff are excellent - I have never experienced such great customer service before.

Riad Rafaele
A stunning riad hidden amongst the maze like streets of the old Marrakech medina. Tricky to find as access is off a side alley through an old tunneled walk way but plenty of "helpful" locals will show you for a few dirhams ( they'll push it but be firm 20 is plenty. It's only a couple of hundred meters from where the taxi drops you off. Cars can't get there as the road is too narrow. A short walk is fun! You have no idea what is inside as you stand on the crumbling street, with a couple of local cats for company. When the door opens, it's a whole new world! The room was amazing, huge, luxurious, the reception was friendly with welcoming tea and biscuits. The plunge pool under the central garden of citrus trees was icy cold. Perfect to cool down from the hot day outside. The room had exquisite furnishings and architecture. So happy to have found this gem.
